Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft For Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day Mouse Craft is an easy and adorable craft idea made from chocolates, a little felt, and some glue.

I don’t want a real mouse in the house at all ever. But a chocolate mouse in the form of this Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft For Valentine’s Day, that’s fine.

I’m mean, he’s just so cute.

If you use regular glue to make the mouse, the chocolate becomes inedible because the glue can leak through the wrapper. So, to be safe, you want to use either non-toxic glue or adhesive dots if you’re making this Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft to act as a school Valentine’s Day card.

Which you could absolutely do. Just add some homemade cardstock name tags on to each mouse or purchase Valentine’s Day cards and affix a mouse to each one using adhesive dots.

That would definitely be the talk of the class party, for sure. Just ask your kid first.

Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft For Valentine’s Day

I originally made this Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft as a sponsored post from a Valentine’s Day craft kit. The kit doesn’t exist anymore, so I decided to redo the post, letting you know how to make it without the kit.

Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft For Valentine’s Day Supplies:

How To Make A Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft For Valentine’s Day

Remove the tag from two Hershey’s Kisses. You don’t have to remove the entire tag, just any that is poking through the top.

Cut a 4-inch piece of pink ribbon. Fold it in half.

Put a drop of glue on the flat side of one of the Hershey’s Kisses. Affix the ribbon to it, leaving some of the glue showing.

Stick the second Hershey’s Kiss to the first one.

Cut three 1-inch pieces of elastic.

Put a drop of glue on the tip of one of the Kisses. Spread the three pieces of elastic across it (as whiskers) and put the pink pom pom ball on top.

If the elastic takes up all the glue, you can put a second drop of glue top of it to stick the pom pom on top.

This will take a really long time to dry in place, so if you just skip the whisker because glue is slippery, I wouldn’t blame you.

If you do skip the whiskers (spoiler alert: I ended up doing that), just stick the pom pom to the front as the nose.

Cut ears, feet, and a tail from the pink felt.

Glue on the eyes, ears, feet, and tail.

Then let the mouse sit and dry.

After the mouse sits and the glue dries completely, your kids can pick him up and play with him. He’s actually a lot less fragile than the whiskers should lead you to believe.

Since the mouse has a ribbon, you can actually hang him if you want too, which would be a really cute and easy way to decorate your Valentine’s Day tree.

Which yes, people have. Not us. We take the tree down the Saturday after Little Christmas, but I do know people who keep a tree up year round and decorate it for every holiday. So these Hershey’s Kiss mice would be the perfect Valentine’s Day tree ornament.

Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft: Frequently Asked Questions

Can you eat this Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft For Valentine’s Day?

When you’re making edible crafts, you want to stay away from hot glue. Hot glue is great when you want things to stick together. E6000 glue is fantastic too, if you’ve never tried that.

So those would be great in this craft and would really hold your mouse together.

But — and this is a big but — those are not safe to eat.

So if you’re making these for a school treat or to be eaten, I definitely would stay away from hot glue or E6000 glue.

If you use non-toxic glue, these should be safe — in theory. Because non-toxic glue is, as it says, non-toxic. But I still wouldn’t be putting it in my coffee, ya know?

The glue can potentially seep in through the porous candy wrapper.
So, to be completely safe, if you really want to eat these, I would use adhesive dots in the entire project.

Can you use glue sticks instead of glue?

If you want to use glue sticks instead of glue to make this Hershey’s Kiss Mouse Craft For Valentine’s Day, go right ahead. Just make sure that they’re non-toxic.

Glue sticks might be a little easier for younger kids to use when they’re making this craft.

What if you don’t have felt?

If you can’t find pink felt, or just don’t feel like buying a whole pack of felt for one piece, you can use pink card stock instead.

That will work for the ears and feet, anyway.

Pink card stock won’t work for the tail, so you’ll want to use something like gray yarn instead.

Do you have to make the whiskers?

Skip the whiskers if you want. They did fall off of my mouse completely, dragging the nose with it. But since whiskers were in the original craft kit, I left them in the post.

If you want an alternative to using elastic to make whiskers, you can just cut really thin pieces of gray card stock. I actually think that would work a lot better than these smooth pieces of elastic would.
